Book in advance because it is always full, in particular on weekends. Price of fish is rather high for the city standards, but it has wide choice of fresh and very good fish and sea products. Be careful with the wine list and with some kind of food (lobster and similar). However worth a visit for the nice location and... More

Park Fora nicely located on the posphourus with fresh seafood that include live Lobsters, Oysters and other shellfish. The menue does not provide a brief description about the dish or what it contains or how it is cooked furthermore it specifies price per Kilograme so naturally you would ask to split the fish but this is a bad choice as...

Our concierge recommended this restaurant as it was within 5-10 minutes by taxi from our Hotel.The waiter was quite slow at serving us. The view is great overlooking the Bosphourus. All the food that we ate didn't really have a lot of taste and was very expensive for what you get. Im sure you could get better fish elsewhere with... More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant as it was within walking distance of the Ciragan Palace Hotel. He also mentioned he'd managed to get us a window table but when we arrived we discovered that all the window tables were reserved for smokers so we sat in the other room. The one tentacle of octopus was tender and sizzingly hot but... More
